Turnaround a School with Innovation during the Pandemic: Observation from Hong Kong
The pandemic of COVID-19 pressed pause button for many organizations around the world. The disruption also presents a threat to survival for disadvantaged schools in Hong Kong. In this presentation, the speaker will share a case in which a public-school principal turned around a declining school with innovation, and successfully transformed an ‘invisible’ school to a ‘visible’ school in the local community. She will proceed to discuss possible take-aways with participants from educational organizations and beyond.

“Living together in peace depends on understanding what is happening outside the borders of our countries and on mutual solidarity, sharing and cooperation.”
Creative, innovative solutions to problems and challenges in education in different countries and regions can be instructive and supportive in terms of institutional development and effectiveness.
There is a need to understand how and in what direction our practices will transform education and educational institutions, and to produce common, flexible and sustainable solutions in line with this understanding.
The COVID pandemic has not only increased awareness of the problems of transnationalism, but also revealed the need for transformation and repositioning in education in terms of content and method.
Shared wisdom, solidarity and cooperation can increase potential energy and motivation in challenges that an individual, institution or country cannot overcome on their own.
